High Heel Love - High Heel Cupcakes

No, you aren't looking at a shoe store display,
you are looking at cupcakes that are stepping out in style!

I definitely love high heels and feel like a beautiful
high heel is like a piece of art and
each of these fun cupcakes is a piece of
art too.

While we are waiting around for wedding pictures,
I had a fun afternoon with my oldest daughter
making these darling cupcake shoes
that you may have seen in 

The variations are endless and everyone wants to touch
them and taste them.

On this pair I actually used a big of bling left from the wedding
reception.  Obviously, this bit of decor is non-edible but
the rest of the cupcakes are all edible.

We had all kinds of fun trying out different
colors and creating unique shoe styles with
frosting, sanding sugars, chocolate clay and

Each pair is designed one at a time.  You start by
frosting the cupcakes.  I piped it on and then spread it out.

Then the 
cupcakes are dipped in a bowl of sanding sugars.

Place the frosted cupcake in the fridge for about
15 minutes to let the frosting harden, then
cut a small slit off the back of the cupcake where
you will place the sole. 

That small slit is filled with frosting to make the sole
stick to the cupcake.

The sole is a square of graham cracker that has
been cut with a short end about 3/4 inch wide
and tapering out to the other end of the cracker.  Dip the
crackers in melted candy melts which have been
dipped and placed on a parchment paper until dry.

Pipe frosting around the edge of the sole and dip it in 
matching sanding sugar.

Cut 2 pieces of Pirouline cookies about 2 1/4 inches
with one end flat and the other at a 45 degree angle.
Melt some white candy melts to stick these stilettos
onto the soles of the high heels.

So the steps are
1. frost the cupcakes
2. chill then slice a small piece off back of cupcake
3.  fill the back with frosting to make the sole stick
4. take a prepared sole and pipe it with frosting and
dip it in matching sugar
5.  place the sole into the back of the shoe
6.  meanwhile dip the angled end of the
Pirouline cookie into candy melt and
attach the stiletto heel
7. attach any decor

To make an open toe shoe just slice out a small round
and pipe frosting around the edge.
Bows are made with a stick of gum.  Heat
them in the microwave about 6 seconds to
soften if necessary.

The decor on these were made from white chocolate clay.

The Hello Cupcake cookbook
has much better instructions. 
This was just such a fun project.  
They are for
Baby Jacquelyn's First Birthday Party!

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
